ABC officially picks up ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ set for a fall debut

Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) lives another day, leading a group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. According to IGN, ABC made the official order for the upcoming TV show, which will air starting this fall.

Co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen and directed by Joss Whedon, the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot was filmed back in January, one of the earliest pilots to go into production this year.

Gregg reprises his role from the Marvel films as Phil Coulson in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., joined by a cast that includes Ming-Na Wen (“Agent Melinda May”), Elizabeth Henstridge (“Agent Jemma Simmons”), Iain De Caestecker (“Agent Leo Fitz”), Brett Dalton (“Agent Grant Ward”), Chloe Bennet (“Skye”) and J. August Richards.

While the character names for everyone else have been revealed (and all are apparently newly created for the series), Richards’ character is being kept under wraps, leading to speculation he is playing someone from the Marvel Universe.

The first promo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air this weekend, during Sunday night’s Once Upon a Time finale.
